Post-power outage casualty count

So after 39 hours of no power, my 3 battery bubblers from bass pro were a lifesaver!! But without lights, I'm worried... The anemone jumped off his rock and wiggled to the front of the tank, shrank down to 1/10th his size. I know the tank did get cold too. It's all back up and running, every fish is alive and no worse for the wear. Tests come out good except for 40 nitrates, but I did a pwc with 5 gal of water, planning to do another tomorrow. Salinity went WAY up to 1.029, I got it back to 1.024. Worried about the nem, he had settled into a great spot on the rock after a month of walking around. Any ideas if you guys think he will be ok? No sliming or disintegrating <fingers crossed>.

How did everyone else make out?

Maybe put it in a bucket outside if it's sunny?

Haha, I'll just clip the leash to one of his million tentacles. I plopped him back on his preferred rock last night before bed, we'll see how long he stays put!
